Ok, he isn't as complete a player as Mikko, no where near the same two-way ability, so it might have been a bit of hyperbole on my part comparing the two.
I think this is something we may be able to discuss like 5 years from now, probably not even then. This is one tournament, and a rather weak one at that and they haven't even played three full games yet. Niko Kapanen played a big tournament for Finland back in 2009 (but we were still eliminated in the QF) and I'd even put him above Kontiola because of his long term success.

Meh, bad game from Finland. At least got the three points, I'm sure we will look better against better teams.

Am I the only one who thinks Jalonen doesn't care as much as he used to? It's truly time for him to hand over the reigns to someone else.

He most certainly doesn't care about sucking up to MTV 3 interviewers.

I have a feeling that we get really exposed against USA and Russia. But we'll see.

He wasn't like that before. Well, I can't blame him if he's fed up after all these years.

This was pretty horrible to watch actually.. 3 points was the goal, now this game can be forgotten. Without a bit of disrespect for France thought.

I doubt team USA will do much exposing, they aren't very good this year.

Kontiola is so far the only blink of light in our team, not including goaltending ofcourse.
I have no memory, why he didn't get a fair shake in the NHL, but judging by his stats, he should've had.
